Having arrived in the City the night before, with only four days to explore, I got an early start the following morning walking the 3/4th of a mile to the train, from the home of my Couchsurfing hostess–Maria and her parents–in Brooklyn. The train ride into Manhattan took anywhere from 35 – 50 minutes, depending on where I was headed, and if I needed to transfer trains. My experience taking trains in Europe was good practice for the subway here.
I had purchased a book about New York City and tore out the walking tours to have some type of map and plan. Even with the map, the streets in Greenwich are a bit confusing, because they wind around and connect here and there. As you can see, It was an overcast day.
This grouping of sculptures is very creative. I like that they’re devoid of color, except for the one pair of tennis shoes.
This building is pretty…
I hope you like flower shops…I tend to photograph them whenever I see one.
This pop of green was a pleasant surprise!
I’m sure The Cherry Lane Theatre has some interesting shows…
The pigeons caught my eye because every time someone walked by, they would scatter and the man taking a smoke break was interesting.
These sidewalk fruit and vegetable stands are handy…
I didn’t explore the interior of this vintage clothing shop, but it looks like it would be quite eclectic!
My next stop was Chelsea Market. See you tomorrow!
